This lesson covers the understanding of scattering models and techniques. It delves into the results obtained from solving equations related to scattering models. The lesson explains the concept of reflectivity of a layer of particles, isotropic scattering, and the impact of forward scattering. It also discusses the errors made when assuming isotropic scattering. The lesson further explores the effect of the total optical depth of the slab of particles and the transmittance. It introduces the discrete ordinates method and the spherical harmonic method for solving complex scattering problems. The lesson concludes with a discussion on the Monte Carlo method, which is becoming increasingly popular due to advancements in computer technology.

- Reflectivity of particles increases linearly initially for small values of single scaring Albedo.
- Isotropic scattering is uniform in all directions.
- Forward scattering results in less backward scattering, hence reducing the Albedo of a cloud of particles.
- The discrete ordinates method and the spherical harmonic method are traditional techniques used to solve complex scattering problems.
- The Monte Carlo method is becoming increasingly popular due to advancements in computer technology, as it can handle problems of any complexity.
